Waterproof Double Sided Tape
What is acrylic foam tape? Where to apply? Aug 18 , 2022

      Acrylic foam tape, also known as acrylic foam tape. Because different materials have different elongation rates when temperature changes. During the life cycle of the component, structural bonding needs to accept the action of static force and dynamic force, and the generated stress needs to be dispersed, and acrylic foam tape can be used as the bonding substrate to complete the simple and long-term bonding between different materials. Structural fixation without causing any damage to the material itself: this is because it ensures stable bonding between various materials, even when applied between bonded panels of different elongations, it can still withstand extreme temperature changes and thus achieve stable bonding.

1. The three main characteristics of acrylic foam tape series:

  • Adhesion

Achieves strong and durable bonds, even on materials with different surface properties Excellent chemical resistance, conforms to different bonding surfaces The tape provides excellent wetting of rough and uneven bonding surfaces

  • Stress dispersion

Acrylic foam tapes provide excellent compensation for static or dynamic stress over the life of the part, and are suitable for curved surfaces. The unique viscoelastic properties dissipate external stress and ensure a strong and durable bond. When the temperature changes extremely, it can compensate the thermal expansion and contraction between different materials

  • Temperature and weather resistance

       Excellent adhesion can cope with the influence of different climates, such as rain, light, etc.Acrylate material composed of chemical bonds between molecules cultivates strong antioxidant properties.After special curing reaction, acrylic foam tape constitutes excellent temperature resistance.


2.The main application areas of acrylic foam tape:

  •  Car category

Acrylic foam tapes are suitable for permanent fixation of exterior parts of the car body, especially the bonding of car body curves and corners.

Acrylic foam tape has strong adhesion to materials with different appearance characteristics such as automotive exterior parts and varnishes. During the life of the whole vehicle, due to the different thermal shrinkage rates of the body and exterior parts, static or dynamic stresses are easily generated and act on the bonding parts. The viscoelastic properties of acrylic foam tape allow for optimal stress dispersion. In addition, the product can also complete the waterproof sealing of the exterior parts to avoid noise and cope with extreme weather such as hot, cold, rain and snow.


  • Electronic category

Acrylic foam tape is suitable for touch screen, window and backplane bonding applications of mobile phones, tablets and other electronic products. Traditionally, narrow bezel designs are becoming more and more common in electronic products. On a very small bonding area, the acrylic foam tape still maintains excellent bonding strength, absorbs the impact force of drops and collisions, and exerts the effect of shock absorption, thereby preventing the cover glass from falling off or shattering. At the same time, the product is easy to die-cut, suitable for bonding and fixing of electronic devices of various sizes, and can also complete waterproof sealing.

  • Construction category

Glass partition wall bonding: Acrylic foam tape can successfully complete the bonding between glass or glass and aluminum profiles. A range of clear acrylic foam tapes for virtually invisible partition wall bonding, while being quick to clean and compensating for material tolerances. According to different design and application requirements, black and white products are also available.

Curtain Wall Bonding: Eye-catching building façades can be finished by masking decorative walls. Compared with traditional mechanical fixing methods, acrylic foam tape can create a more "clean" and beautiful appearance effect, while meeting the high requirements of outdoor weather protection.

Indoor Wall Covering: Acrylic Foam Tape can fasten ACM panels, acrylic glass panels, HPL panels, mirror, wood panels to the base plate to quickly change the style of interior decoration. Tape installs panels quickly and cleanly, without damaging the material and without waiting for curing time.

Elevator reinforcement rib fixation: Acrylic foam tape can complete the reinforcement rib fixation of the elevator door panel to avoid deformation caused by external forces. In addition to ensuring strong and durable adhesion, the product is also resistant to vibration and shock.

Furniture Decorative Panel Fixing: Decorative panels of acrylic glass, wood, glass, etc. are very common in cabinets, wardrobes and living room furniture. The acrylic foam tape can carry a certain weight of the panel and complete the durable and firm fixation between different materials.

  • The category of home appliances

Acrylic foam tape can be used to fix transparent or translucent decorative panels of home appliances, such as refrigerators, electric ovens, washing machines, air conditioners, etc. Invisible bonding ensures the design aesthetics of home appliances, and the foam substrate can absorb vibration and reduce noise, and is also suitable for bonding with curved surfaces. High adhesion can be achieved even on low surface energy surfaces such as plastics.

  • New energy category

Solar Applications: Acrylic foam tapes are capable of handling many of the harsh structural bonding applications in the solar industry, such as module back beams, concentrators and heliostats. It can maintain a clean working environment when bonding, complete fast bonding without drying or curing, and provide a reliable and efficient production process.

Wind energy blade applications: In the design of wind blades, external components such as deflectors or serrated trailing edges optimize turbine performance. Bonding these external components with acrylic foam tape reduces assembly time and optimizes the blade processing production process compared to liquid adhesives. The tapes provide high bond strength with excellent stress dispersion and excellent weatherability.

  • Scope of transportation

Acrylic foam tape can effectively deal with the assembly of components in the ceiling, wall and floor of the motor car, high-speed rail or aircraft. Fastening can be done efficiently and securely, while meeting the requirements for an "aluminum-tape-aluminum" sandwich construction. Almost all projects used in motor trains, high-speed trains or airplanes today need to be fire rated, and certified fireproof materials must be used.
